Excerpt: When I was looking for a printer, there were so many printers models and makes to choose from that it made the task of choosing the right one a little bit difficult. I personally wanted a All in One Printer, a printer that can print, scan and copy all in one machine that didn't take up too much room on my desk.
Summary: I checked on the "Which" report for a printer and this one came out very well. Easy to set up wirelessly and works extremely well. I wanted to stick with Canon quality and it lived up to my previous experience of Canon equipment.Excellent.
Summary: Have had this about a month now, so far so good. Prompt delivery, troublefree purchase, compact machine, easy to set up, does what it says on the tin. Not the fastest or quietest (which cost a lot more!) but fine for my purposes, and very good quality colour printing.
Summary: Disappointed that my HP wireless all-in-one has malfunctioned after only 18 months of light use (it keeps telling me to add paper) I searched for an alternative wireless all-in-one, and latched on to this one from Canon as it was the right price and, importantly, used individual ink tanks that should lead to better economy.
Summary: I previously had a Canon ip4500 for 2 or 3 years and wanted to move onto an all-in-one and opted for the Canon MG5250 in the end. It's slightly bigger (due to the scanner part), though that means the paper cassette is now completely hidden rather than sticking out a bit. The addition of a colour screen also means more things can be easily done without having to use a computer.
Summary: After a long run of unsatisfactory all-in-one printers (HP, DELL, KODAK), I bought the Canon MG5250, as it had the most positive reviews on all the web sites I checked. It is now 3 months old, and I have no complaints at all. The original ink cartridges are still going strong in spite of heavy use. It does not mangle my paper or my labels (a huge problem with the others). It produces the best colour prints on photo-paper that I have ever achieved. It is quiet.
Summary: When I decided that I needed to buy a new printer I wasn't hopeful of finding a good printer for less than £80. But I stumbled across this printer and was amazed just how many 5* reviews it had garnered from other reviewers. I own 3 Canon DSLRs that have all been excellent so I figured a Canon printer should also be good, and hey, all those 5* reviews couldn't be wrong, could they?
Summary: Brought the MG5250 as replacement for my HP all in one copier that had decided to throw up the error message "incompatable ink cartridge" despite being a genuine cartridge. Could not clear error so HP is history! Took about 15 minutes to set up the Canon and the easy Wi-Fi setup was a breeze. Early days but printing onto the free Canon glossy II paper sample that came with the Canon gives superb results, the colours are so bright and vivid.
Summary: I purchased one of these, and from the off it gave me problems! I put up with it for months, but did not have the time to do anything constructive about it. One problem too many eventually, so I called Amazon and explained. Amazon doing what they do best, Listened! They asked me if I wanted a refund, or a replacement...telling me I had nothing to lose by giving a new one a try. I opted to give it a go. I am so pleased I did. This is a fantastic piece of kit.
